Here’s another easy dinner with the help of Trader Joe’s. Trader Joe’s often sells frozen fish which is actually very good, but this weekend they also had fresh already seasoned tilapia with their special (G) rating denoting that no gluten ingredients were used. All you have to do with this is put it in a pan and cook it in the oven. There were no directions, so I cooked mine for about 20 minutes at 400 and flipped it in the middle. When it’s cooked it should be flaky.
This fish had a good flavor, but I think I like seasoning my own fish better. I’m not sure I would buy this again. On the side I simply cooked snap pea pods in the microwave for 3 minutes. Unfortunately there is not a picture of these. I did not add any additional seasoning though because snap peas are very sweet and flavorful on their own. For a starch, we had this Orgran product I had never tried before. It was kind of like little rice pilafs, but gluten free. This is the garlic basil flavor. This is a great product if you have to watch your sodium intake because it is seasoned, but without any salt. You cook it in a pot of boiling water just like you would cook pasta. Then you drain it and rinse it with cool water. After it was drained, I put it back in the pot with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. It was really enjoyable, and I would definitely try it again.
